Thank you to Yummy Mummy? Really? for tagging me on this rather lovely idea of a meme started by A Boy With Aspergers . I am very excited to be attending BritMums Live! But at the same time I am somewhat daunted at the prospect of meeting so many other bloggers all at the same time, when I am but a newbie. So, it is really nice to be included in this meme that is doing the rounds.
First off here’s the rules…
Copy the questions and paste them within your own post followed by your own answers …
Tag another 2-4 bloggers to do the same (alerting them to the meme) tip (it’s a good idea to make sure they are attending before tagging them)!
Once complete link your completed Meme to the Linky on A Boy With Aspergers (don’t forget to share rules with your tagged few, giving them this URL for the Linky). This way we can keep track of the answers and importantly who’s tagged.
Please link to and state the creator as A boy with Aspergers.
And now, here’s my response to The Ultimate BritMums Live Linky!
Q: What’s your blog title/URL and how long have you been blogging?
I’ve been blogging properly since November 2011, I’d dabbled before, but it never really got going and then I gave up… and then I started again… and now I can’t stop.
Q: Will Britmums Live be your First blogging conference?
It was going to be, but I’ve just signed up to go to the Save the Children Creating Connections Blogger and Vlogger Conference on 14th April at Google’s London office.
Q: Did you bag yourself a sponsor?
I didn’t ask for one, I can walk to the venue from home, so didn’t seem necessary!
Q: Are you attending both days?
Q: What are you most looking forward to about the conference?
Getting to meet all the other bloggers that I’ve been chatting with for the last few months and of course soaking up as much useful information and tips about blogging a possible.
Q: Are you wearing Branded Clothing ( you’re sponsors brand)?
Q: What is your planed style for this event?
Jeans n Converse or some such similar crazy combo
Q: Are you hoping to be nominated for a BiB award?
Well, I’ve made the shortlist for the BritMums BiB Fresh Voices category – see button and note it winking at you, luring you to vote for me at the top of the side bar – so let’s see what happens…
Q: if so what category?
Fresh Voices – see above for cheeky nudge to vote!!
Q: Will you be looking to network with Brands?
I will happily talk to brands – and anyone else who wants to have a natter!
Q: What do u hope to walk away having gained from the conference?
New ideas, inspiration, contacts and the cementing of friendships that started out life in the blogosphere
Q: Will you be dressing up in the toilets for the Friday night BiBs?
I’ll probo bring a pair of heels in my bag, go for the ‘oops I look fabulous’ method – slick of lippie, killer heels, spritz of perfume – then look in the toilet mirror and realise I look more ‘ooops I look decidedly average’
Q: Are you speaking at the conference and if so when, where and how do you feel about doing so?
No, not this year (!!!)
Q: Will you be joining in the early morning bloggercise on the Saturday?
Quite possibly… not!
Q: What speakers are you most looking forward to listening to?
Ruby Wax, Camila Batmanghelidjh, Jane Blackmore, Carla Buzasi… and many others…
Q: What workshops will you be attending on the Friday (Day 1)
Yet to decide, can’t make up my mind.
Q: What Workshops being held on the Saturday (Day 2) have grabbed your attention?
Yet to decide here too!!
Q: Are u booked into a hotel for the Friday night, if yes which one?
No, home is in East End!
Q: Will you be looking for after party drinks
I may be… I’ve been known to prop up the bar in the Hoxton Hotel before now, so my arm could be twisted
Q: Are u worried about not knowing anyone or being confident and socialising on the day?
Yes, always worried about this. Walking into a room full of strangers is one of my biggest stomach churners, I get so nervous. But at the same time, I am ubber approachable and so keen to chat and meet everyone!
Q: What’s are you most likely to be found doing why attending Britmums Live?
Talking and soaking up as much BritMum-ness as I can!
Right and now to some tagging, just going to tag two as working out the who’s going thing is taking time and I am on a self-imposed deadline to write, write, write whilst the Tinkerous Toddler is being suitably amused by my parents!!
